Penner-Ash Wine Cellars
Penner-Ash Wine Cellars is a Willamette Valley Oregon Winery that has impressed me in every way. Their wines are delicious, their dedication to the craft of winemaking is outstanding, and their hospitality is heartwarming and wonderful. And this visit was no different! My amazing experience at Penner-Ash has only made me more excited to come back next time.
Additionally, Penner-Ash is one of the many Willamette Valley Oregon Wineries that I adore and wrote about in my Top 10 Willamette Valley Oregon Wineries blog post, which you can check out here!
Arriving at Penner-Ash with a lovely Penner-Ash Rose of Pinot Noir welcoming us by my Oregon pal Dan. If he looks familiar, that’s because he also hosted me at Gran Moraine Winery, a sister Winery to Penner-Ash also owned by the Jackson Family (a brand I adore who has many stunning wineries that I’ve visited and written about).
The vibe of Penner-Ash is very big and open with a loft-like feel to it. I visited during COVID so it wasn’t overly crowded. There were a few other parties but definitely not too many. In sum, I felt super safe in a non overly crowded setting. If you’re curious about what wine tasting is like with COVID, check out my COVID Wine Tasting, What It’s Like & What To Expect.

Starting with the Penner-Ash 2019 Viognier
I absolutely loved the Penner-Ash 2017 Yamhill-Carlton Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir. I found the Penner-Ash Pinot Noir wines lovely. This Pinot Noir had dark jammy fruits and was extremely smooth, elegant, and lovely.
Shown are me and my lovely friend Ashley (an Oregon local who works at Domaine Roy & Fils), another winery that I adore in the area. Read more about Domaine Roy & Wils Winery here.
Cheers to an amazing visit and experience to Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. Be sure to plan you’re visit to this Willamette Valley gem!
